Weekend Recommendation

Happy Saturday everyone!

For the new folks, this is my mostly regular feature "Weekend Recommendation."  It is purely a I-think-you-might-enjoy-this-book type of thing.  It is not a review of a book and I'm not being compensated in any way to recommend these books.  When I get around to it, I periodically go back and add them into the "Weekend Recommendation" button at the top of the page for easy reference.  That way, if you are ever looking for a gift or standing at the library wondering what to get, you have a ready-made list of fabulous picture books to choose from.

So, on to my recommendation already!  This week I'm suggesting a book that came out in 2008.  It is A Couple of Boys Have The Best Week Ever, written and illustrated by Marla Frazee.  The characterization of the grandparents in this book cracked me up.  To me, it pointed out the need to have great personality shine through in all of your characters (even the secondary ones).  Pick it up and have a laugh!

  9. Oh I love this book! I bought it for my son as a Christmas gift at a regional SCBWI conference and actually had Marla sign it for him! It's one of his favorites, of course.
